Sky Watch #30


IMG_0247, originally uploaded by airam94564.

For my fellow skywatchers who drops in this site once a week, I am still running a series on my road trip from memorial day 2008, which is a road trip of highway 395 from Carson City Nevada to Yosemite NP via Tioga Pass.

This was the end of our second day. After a long day driving, we arrived at our destination for the night, Mammoth Lakes. It was late May and we were staying in a lodge just outside the mountain. It was snowing when we arrived.

But on the village as pictured here at 8 pm there was just snow flurries. This is the village (shopping, eating, etc). Pretty deserted on off season and just after the holiday. We replenished our energy by downing some huge portions of pub grub at the Auld Dubliner.
Then we called it a day, finally.

Skywatch is a weekly meme for sky/cloud lovers. Go visit this site for more skies, and clouds, and more.

  7. Beautiful place. I'd say it'd be far nicer without a lot of tourists around for getting great shots like this one.

  11. Snow on Memorial Day. What an alien concept.

    Then again, around here snow in general is an alien concept.

    I know the focus of this shot is supposed to be that rather grim looking sky, but I love this whole scene. Beautiful capture!

  27. wow, this looks like it came out straight from a movie. i am loving the mood. you know, i find it hard sometimes to comment on your photos, i just look at them and enjoy the moment. i am a fan of the clouds and the sky and they usually make me speechless, you know what i mean? it's just that, sometimes, saying something spoils everything. but then again, i had to say something so that you'll keep throwing us those lovely shots. :-)
